I have a 1988 FSB and am wondering if the Universal Joint inside the steering column should be able to move an 1 1/2 in either direction by hand or should it be tight and not move by hand. I have taken the steering column apart as far as the universal joint to see if that might be causing some of the play in steering. I have not adjusted the screw on the gear box as of yet. Checking everything else first. I have checked everything else and all of the linkage, tie rods, ball joints look good. There is about 4 inches of play in the steering in either direction and a helper has to turn the steering wheel 4 inches to get the wheels to turn. Also I noticed the groves on the steering shaft are missing on two sides about a 1/2 inch when i took the steering wheel off. Would that cause play also?
